New method provides 3D images of cell chemistry

3D image shows how a metal carbonyl complex is distributed within a cell with a cross-section at the level of the nucleus. The lighter areas show greater concentrations of the substance – with a clear concentration in the nucleus. (Cell size: approx. 180x80x40 micrometer). Image: M. Obst/University of Tübingen

Tübingen and Swiss researchers combine tomography and infrared microscopy to make 3D snapshots of cell samples
